United States Employment Service
- (USES)Originally established in 1914 on Ellis Island, the U.S. Employment Service was detached from the Bureau of Immigration and expanded during World War I to place workers in war industries. Although reduced in size after the war, USES continued and was reconstituted in 1933. It was initially primarily responsible for directing labor for projects in the Public Works Administration. It also placed workers for the Civil Works Administration and later for the Works Progress Administration. The role of USES expanded after 1935 because all unemployment compensation under the Social Security Act was to be paid via USES offices. In 1939, the service was moved to the Federal Security Agency, and during the war all 1,500 state-run employment offices were taken over by the federal government.
